EB-5 Economics: Overview of Available Input/Output Models
When: Thursday May 29, 2014
Time: 3:00 PM EST/ 12:00 PM PST
Registration:  Members $50 (use promo code)
Topic: In the fifth installment of IIUSA’s 2014 (monthly) Webinar Series, three experienced economists will take a closer look at the economic modeling that is the basis for EB-5 Regional Center petition adjudication.
According to USCIS policy, economic impact models used for to meet the requirements of the EB-5 Regional Center Program must be “reproducible” based on “reason” assumptions backed with “verifiable detail.” There are several input/output models that can be used to fulfill this requirement, such as: IMPLAN, RIMS II, I-RIMS, REMI, and REDYN. Our expert panelists will review these models, explore their similarities and differences, and – most importantly – proper application based on sound inputs.EB-5 investors, Regional Centers, and project rely on the appropriate use of these models, so this is a webinar you don’t want to miss!
